New fashion logistics facility by Fiege

Following the assumption of a comprehensive range of supply chain activities for the fashion maker Primera situated in Münster/Germany and running the entire logistical facility, Fiege is further expanding its position within the realm of fashion logistics. Since April 2012 Fiege has been renting the totality of three warehouses offering 16,500 m² of storage space based on the grounds of Primera's head office and in future will be operating them as an independent facility.

For the women's outerwear brands apriori, Cavita and Laurèl - all owned by Primera - Fiege is in charge of incoming goods, order picking and the dispatch for the national as well as international distribution of flat textile goods and hanging garments, the entire handling of raw materials such as outer fabrics and notions (zippers, buttons) as well as returns processing at the Münster-based location. In addition to these core supply chain operations Fiege also assumes numerous value added services for Primera.

Some two million garments leave the warehouse every year. By consolidating Primera's logistical activities the distances and duration of supply chain processes have already been reduced.

"Consolidation and the optimisation of additional logistical process flows enable us to integrate other customers from the fashion industry at this location in the future and to generate synergies for all parties involved", explains Günter Westrup, Fiege Regional Director Westphalia.

The textile industry forms one of the eight core industries for which Fiege engineered high-performance contract logistic concepts. At 13 Fiege-owned fashion locations across the whole of Europe Fiege handles as a leading contract logistics provider to the fashion & textile sector the logistical operations for over 250 million garments per annum for renowned customers of these industries.
